is one of the most famous people in uniform. >> also, our military and the fbi now on the hunt in libya for the killers of those four americans who died in our consultate. tonight, al-qaeda praising the death of u.s. ambassador are chris stevens and in citing others to go after troops. we witness the latest efforts to protect americans under threat. >> we begin with a fox you bent. urgent. brand new details on the surprise attack in afghanistan that killed two u.s. marines yesterday. here is what is key. and you will notice the trend here. we are now learning about 15 taliban insurgents stormed that base wearing u.s. army uniforms. at the post our marines share with the british forces. the international security assistance forces telling us the ambush was well equipped, well trained, well rehearsed. armed with automatic rifles and rocket propelled grenade launchers and suicide vests. attackers access the base airfield by breaching one point in the perimeter fence. organized into three teams now we know again they were dressed in our u.s. army uniforms. the insurgents targeting aircraft,
units of marines fan out to these countries, fbi agents are being sent to libya to investigate the murder of the american ambassador there and degr three other americans were killed. the fbi. we think of the fbi as a domestic agency, it's the fbi that's part of the u.s. government that has the authority to investigate deaths of americans in all other parts of the world. fbi did it in the embassy bombings in kenya, in tanzania in 1998, and the "uss cole" bombing in 2000 and mumbai bombings in india in 2008 and now the fbi is investigating in libya or at least we're told they are on their way. the fbi being dispatched to libya is yet another reminder what happened in libya appears to be a different kettle of fish than what is happening at all the other embassies and u.s. sites around the world today. the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador appears to be a coordinated military assault by well-armed men who arrived at the scene quite separately from any civilian protest. given the militant groups known to operate in the area of benghazi and the types of attacks for which those g
to disperse the demonstrators who threw bottles. four people were hurt. >> the fbi is putting off its visit to libya reasons. agents had hoped to arrive today to continue their investigation into the bombing that killed the ambassador and three others. christopher stevens, sean smith, and security officers ty woods and glen douherty will be transferred to their families. they were killed four days ago in an attack on the united states consulate in benghazi. arwa damon got inside that building. it's now burned out and has the most complete picture that she's about to bring us of the violence from that night and the warning that came days before. >> amid the ash, soot, and debr debris, remnants of a life that was. and what it meant to those stationed here. scrawled on this sheet, libya is so important. traces of blood stain the walls. what is now a blackened ruin was a pleasant compound in an upscale benghazi neighborhood. libyan officials say tuesday night's attack was planned by islamist militants and quickly overwhelmed the libyan and american guards. the compound's first line of defense e
. >> the fbi is, has the lead in this investigation. the information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack, that what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. megyn: we are now awaiting a briefing from the state department on the anti-american protests rocking the middle east and the muslim world. you can bet this question will come up, but what will the state department say? it is now refusing all questions about what happened in libya because it claims an fbi investigation is underway, and it says you have to refer your questions to the justice department, but they won't talk to you either. we are going to have what we can learn from that briefing and catherine herridge whose reporting this is with more of this exclusive just ahead right here. >>> we are also getting new video, riots raging across the globe today, and as the anti-american protests spread beyond north africa and the middle east, it is posing a seriou
the fbi is investigating. my guess is there's no formal al qaeda connection. there are groups that are supporters, it's a shadowy group of people. they might have had some historical connections to al qaeda in the past. certainly the leader of al qaeda talked about the recent death of a kind of key al qaeda libyan leader just before this event, there might be some kind of connection. but i think it's pretty early to be making any definitive conclusio conclusions. the libyans have arrested some people. there is an interview with a libyan official who says this seems to be a deliberate attack, because not only did they attack a consulate, they also attacked a safe house. it implies some kind of penetration of the libyan security services by this group. >> and it also occurred on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. the effort to sack the u.s. embassy in cairo also occurring on the anniversary of 9/11. is that coincidental? what do you make of that? >> it's a very interesting coincidence, if it's a coincidence. the history here, wolf, is that no one was paying any attention to this vide
kills two marines. >>> and terror in chicago as the fbi arrest a man accused of plotting an attack. we'll tell you exactly what he was planning. good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. it's 7:00 a.m. on the east coast and 4:00 a.m. on the west coast. we start with four men who were killed by men believed to be afghan police. it happened in southern afghanistan though officials aren't saying exactly where. joining me on the latest attack is anna coren. she's in kabul, afghanistan. an anna, good morning. what can you tell us about the attacks. >> the latest happened the morning, four coalition troops gunned down by an afghan police officer. we believe he was working with the coalition forces. this has been a trend now for some time. it's taken the number of deaths to 51 so far this year. these green-on-blue attacks. afghan soldiers turning on their coalition partners who are fundamentally training them so that they can take over control, take over security of their country come the final exist in 2014. to put that into context, 51 deaths so far this year and we're only in the middle of s
of treating it like it's a "law & order" issue, rather than a war on terrorism. they have sent the f.b.i. over who had to cool their heels for days before they could even get in there, and i don't know if they are in benghazi yet. but, you know, i heard yesterday about this journal that was found by -- of the ambassador, three days after the attack by a journalist walking through the compound. this is just lew ludicrous. on the face of it the way they are handling this is so incompetent, and treating it again like it's a "law & order" issue, they've sent the f.b.i. to investigate, like when they find out what is wrong are they going to try to arrest somebody in libya? bill: we'll be in touch with your office and find out what you find out. thank you for your time. i want to bring in senior brooks, a senior fellow for national security affairs. peter what is going on here. >> i have the same concerns that the chairman has, he just expressed, and he's probably better informed than i am. we see all of these loose treads on this narrative coming out of the white house. my sense at this point becau
memorandum, it was uncovered in virginia in an fbi raid in 1991. it is very clear what their intent and purpose is and when you read their charter, this is a group that is very closely tied to terrorism and all of these subsidiary groups really have the muslim brotherhood as the grandfather organization, establish in the 1920s. >> sean: it seeps to me, congressman, we are at a tipping point. anti-american sentiment. anti-american violence is growing. we have a president -- i don't know -- i don't think appeasement is the right word as much as he is weak. and the people in the middle-east, all they know is strength. and that strength needs to be backed up by a commitment to follow through. it seems this president just protects weakness and as a result his outreach is resulting in what we see here. are you wrong -- am i wrong? >> you are absolutely right. for about 40 months, they only understand strength and might. when you recognize ronald reagan's three critical word it's peace through strength. if you recall in the reagan administration, when he uncovered that libya was behind the
the fbi today announcing that they are investigating all aspects of this case and that may include sam bacile himself. perhaps not for making of the movie but other past deeds that he may have done. >> just the remarkable danger that he's put these people in. to suggest for a moment it's my fault, don't worry about it, you can tell that to the millions of people who aren't even listening to their own leaders when their leaders tell them to tamp down the violence. miguel, good work and thank you. >>> we'll keep you updated as well as we continue to dig. miguel is busy tracking down all the paperwork. when we find out more about this person, we'll bring you the very latest of the you can also keep track of it by logging on to cnn.com. the one you plan to take. whoa, check it out. hey baby goat... no that's not yours...

projected. food stamps, half a billion dollars. fbi salaries, a quarter billion dollars of cuts. national parks, 218 million and the one that really stands out. embassy security projected to be cut by $129 million when the whole world has seen how much we need to beef up security. >> this is clear where the left hand is not talking to the right hand. as jon huntsman just said, we need more on that. >> of course on both sides, whether the white house and congress are saying look how damaging these meat cleaver cuts are. this is not the way anyone wants to go about this, but this is what they've been handed. >> what has been the gop reaction? >> it's been fascinating. the gop is trying to pass the buck. john boehner put out a statement today, said this report confirms that the president's sequester, the president's sequester, is a serious threat to our national security and must be replaced. so you see what's going on there. congress, speaker, want to have nothing to do with it, trying to get president obama to own the sequester when this was always going to be congress' responsibility. thi
of america there are fbi agents and intelligence analysts already in libya investigating and we will find the culprits of the death of our ambassador. >> bill: they have to be killed. we have to get them not the libyans, would veto get them. >> look, look. i think that american interests are american interests. we should protect our interest. it is what we are doing all over the world. in this war on terrorism. >> bill: okay, now, should the president have been a little bit stronger about the egyptian situation because we all know and you better than most because you are in the intel committee, all right, that the egyptian government could have stopped this cold and chose not to so, therefore, american lives are put in danger and american property destroyed. should the president have come out and said that better not happen again and we're not going to tolerate it in a much stronger way than he did? >> you know, diplomacy really tough. and ambassador stevens gave his life in the name of diplomacy there are things, bill, you and i know are set and communicated sometimes not publicly so tha
that interview. told police he would not return to his home many california. you can see it here. the fbi has been investigating threats against nikoula. >>> in syria the new international an voi says he has no plan for peace, but says both the opposition and the government must work together. meanwhile, government troops pounded the opposition in allepo. leaders say that more than 160 people died across the country yesterday. while his forces launch more attacks, syrian president assad says he is committed to peace and is blaming outside forces for arming the anti-government fighters. >>> back here at home the nation's third largest school district could be up and running again soon. teachers in chicago set to vote today on whether to end a week-long strike. the union has reached a tentative agreement with the school board, but it's not a done deal yet. reverend jesse jackson stepped in to show his support for chicago teachers during a rally yesterday. >> this is not just a -- this is a struggle for working people everywhere. >> if all goes well today, students could return to classes tomorr
they are trying to do is hide behind the fact of an fbi investigation that's pending in libya. which i find ridiculous. the idea that the administration has returned to terrorism as a criminal law matter rather than as a continuing war is extraordinarily disturbing. >> i am even surprised at the discussion. why in the world did anyone need a warning? i've traveled to some of the dangerous places around the country. i haven't been to libya, but i would suspect that place would look pretty dangerous to me. they have a grand new government, lots of factions, you have people fighting each other, fighting the old administration. why would you even need a warning that we really have to have lots of security for our people? >> we were obviously caught by surprise both in libya and in egypt. different situations but caught by surprise in both cases which means only one of two things. either there's a massive intelligence failure not to see this coming, or the administration believes that things were so benign, that the environment was so calm they didn't have to worry about it. wrong in both cases.
to libya and three others? >> yeah. it's difficult to say because the fbi is over there. but it's hard to carry out an investigation on the ground right now. that is such a -- libya itself is confusing. that benghazi area is one of the most confusing of all. it's an al qaeda stronghold out there. there's also al sharia which is basically a conglomeration of jihadist paramilitaries. i can't tell you with any real certainty how accurate these investigations are. a lot of people have been picked up by the libyan authorities. how guilty they really are, i don't know. we're still in the fog of war. we're in an area where we don't have that many assets on the ground. we have a libyan government which i think actually to give them credit, i think the libyan government itself is trying to work with us. unlike president morsi in egypt, libyans are trying. but it's a very new government. it's ineffective government. out in benghazi there's virtually no security. we're talking about a consulate which had, again, virtually no security. there were no military back-ups for our ambassador out there.
yesterday. the f.b.i. is in libya assisting local authorities investigating what happened at that consulate and they're searching for those responsible. in indonesia and pakistan, protesters clashing with police, and elsewhere after friday prayers. muslim leaders called for calm, but the flag burning and anti-american chants continue. protesters set fire to two movie theaters and a toll booth. police responding with tear gas and batons and the security has been beefed up at embassies across the region with more -- the possibility of more protests ahead. guys. >> gretchen: rick leventhal live in jerusalem, thank you. >> eric: let me point something out. a lot of the reason why it was the movie and it has been the movie is because a couple of weeks ago at the dnc, at the convention down there, joe biden said it, i'm not sure if president obama said it or not, but it was you ared quite a few times, osama bin laden is dead and gm is alive. a lot of this protest is at least what we're reading, is in response to the victory lap that the administration is taking for killing bin laden. so if you at
. it was wildly successful beyond their dreams and to be able to kill the american face in libya. >> the fbi is not commentog the status of its investigation . the agents are on the ground and they are not in benghazi itself . >> gretchen: thank you so much, kelly. >> steve: 67th annual united nation's general assemy will kick off. our president will make a speech but not meet with them. but he will meet with the ladies of the view. that was the topic of rogert bibs and chris wallace. watch >> i want to go back to the un and new york this week. he's got schedules and foreign leaders have schedules, but the president has blocked out time to appear on the view on tuesday, so he has time for whoopy goldberg but not world leaders? >> no, chris, look, the president will be actively involved with the un. >> he's giving a speech. >> chris, they have telephones in the white house. he talked to the leader in libya. we don't need a meeting in washington to confer with leaders. >> but he has -- >> i am sure if he would do an brew with you on fox news, you would have no problem. >> he hasn't. that's not
on the information that we have had available. there is an ongoing investigation. the fbi is investigating and that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. bill: kt mcfarland, fox news national security analyst, stephen hayes, weekly writer for "the weekly standard", fox news contributor. >> good morning bill, we talked about this on monday. kt is there a crack in the story we're seeing? >> yeah, sure is. why are they doing it? i think they're haunted by the image of jimmy carter losing the presidential election in 1980 because of hostages in the middle east. the situation is very similar today. the economy is lousy. high oil prices. crisis in the middle east. so they do not want to be compared to that. i also think that they're sticking to kind of cockamamie story that it was spontaneous because of a dumb movie because it absolves them of responsibility. >> how so? >> i think there will be more incidents going forward. can you imagine where we would be instead of assassinating those four diplomats turns out there was a al qaeda hostage taking event where four american dipl
morning, sam. we understand that a team of fbi agents has arrived in benghazi and they have begun their investigation to try to determine who was responsible for the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. we know that they will be sifting through the rubble and ashes at the u.s. consulate and identifying individuals who may have played a role in that assault. we also understand that u.s. intelligence agent sits have deployed their assets across the country to try to pick up any intelligence that can help in that search. all indications right now according to libyan officials is this is a pre-planned attack. they have identified a few individuals. four are in custody of the libyan government. they believe these individuals may have some information that may be of value as to who is responsible for the attack. they also say they have several others under the libyan government surveillance. right now though all fingers are pointing to at least one militant group here that is closely affiliated with or at least inspired by al qaeda. that
